Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northam doubled down on his endorsement of post-delivery abortions the day after he made the horrifying comments live on camera.
During a press conference on Thursday, a reporter asked Northam if he regretted his comments, or if he could have expressed them in a better fashion that would not have left the pro-infanticide legislation dead in the water. In response, he immediately shot back “No I don’t.”
He claimed that his pro-infanticide answer came from his 21 years as a pediatric neurosurgeon, in which the doctor and patient come together to determine medical decisions.
“I’m a physician, um, I’m also the governor, but when I’m asked questions, a lot of times, it is put in the context of being a position,” Northam said, “So no, I don’t have any regrets.”
Northam claimed his only regrets were for how his remarks, in which he claimed a baby could be delivered, “kept comfortable,” and then murdered at the request of the mother after a consultation with her doctor, “were mischaractarized.”
“The personal insults toward me, I really find disgusting.”
Northam explicitly endorsed the idea that an abortion could be carried out even if the mother is in labor and the child’s head was crowning, stating that in such a situation, the baby would be delivered, resuscitated if necessary, then “kept comfortable” while the new mother and her “provider” make a determination about the fate of the infant’s life.
Big League Politics archived video of the statement.
It is unclear how Northam thinks his comments were mischaracterized or taken out of context.

Florida Bill Requiring Parental Consent for Abortion Set to Become Law
Parents now have the right to make medical decisions for their children.
The Florida legislature has passed a new law requiring the consent of parents for minors to receive abortions. The bill passed the state house on Friday and is headed to the desk of Gov. Ron DeSantis. DeSantis has expressed support for the legislation and is expected to sign it, establishing Senate Bill 404 as law.
The legislation will require parents to give their express consent to medical personnel in order for minors to receive abortions.
Parental consent is generally required for minors to do almost anything in American society, such as going on a field trip, receiving treatment from a dentist, or even staying out late on the weekend. It’s somewhat unexplainable that parental consent isn’t legally required for minors to have abortions in most American states.
The bill passed overwhelmingly in the Florida House after first passing the state senate, with a resounding final count of 75-43 in favor.
Planned Parenthood blasted the legislation, taking aim at the notion that parents be given the right to make consequential medical decisions affecting their children.
Unfortunately, SB 404/HB 265 requiring parental consent for minors to receive an abortion passed the Florida House of Representatives yesterday afternoon. We need to call our legislators to hold them accountable for passing this unconstitutional bill!https://t.co/1UlUGsgkkG

It’s one of several policy advancements for the pro-life movement in recent years during Donald Trump’s presidency, and perhaps one of the most significant considering Florida’s status as one of the biggest states in the country
The pro-life legislation adds another conservative feather to the policy cap of Florida’s DeSantis, a Trump supporter who has established a reputation for a willingness and an ability to advance popular conservative legislation into law in Florida. DeSantis is currently in a battle with elements of the state legislature that seek to water down a statewide e-Verify proposal.
